Hail to Thee, Our Alma Mater 

Words by E. Turner Stump Music by Dwight Steere 

From the beauty land Ohio comes an universal praise, 
'lis the song of Alma Mater that her sons and daughters raise, 
'lis a Hail to Kent State College, on the Cuyahoga shore. 
Shouted by the loving thousands as they sing it o'er and o'er. 

Chorus : 

Hail to Thee, our Alma Mater, 
0' how beautiful thou art. 
High enthroned upon the hilltop. 
Reigning over ev'ry heart. 

From the hilltop Kent State College, gating on her portal wide. 
Sees the coming generations as they tlnong to seek her side. 
Seek her side to win her blessing, throng her gates to bear her 
L^eave her gates to sing her praises; go afar to spread her fame. 

Chorus :

Dean Verder 

In September one of the questions most 
frequently put to Freshmen is — Where are 
you from? in June, we put the question to 
Seniors this way — Where are you going? 

Where ever you go. graduates of Kent 
State, remember you are going to show the 
communities where you dwell what Kent 
State has been able to produce. In a most 
vital way you are Kent State, in the end, 
every college is judged by its alumni. By 
far the largest, and possibly the most 
important part of the college is beyond the 
campus, out in the counties of Ohio and 
beyond — beyond at points as far separated 
as southern l-lorida and the Philippines. 
Every graduation is a time of strengthening 
the stakes and lengthening the cords of 
Alma Mater. 

Graduates of 1932, as you go out, you 
carry our best wishes for success, and for 
happiness that comes from devoted service 
in whatever lines of work you find your 
vocations. 



Dean Manchester 

This is a greeting from the Men of Kent 
State College to the faculty, alumni, and 
student body. It is also an expression of 
optimistic faith in the future of the institu- 
tion and a pledge of enthusiastic support for 
all activities and programs designed to pro- 
mote the welfare of the college. 

We are proud to claim membership in the 
great family of Kentonians, confident that 
with the passing years our college will grow 
and prosper. We are sure that Kent will 
always keep the door of opportunity open to 
those seeking knowledge and inspiration and 
always exert a powerful influence upon the 
life of the community. 

The college is growing and with its 
growth comes increasing opportunities for 
the college students, faculty, and the college 
itself to expand its sphere of activity and 
influence. 

Kent is rapidly moving to the front.

President's Message to the Seniors 

My Dear Young Friends: 

You are about to leave Kent State College, some of you with a 
bachelor's degree and all of you with a diploma. Already you are 
wondering what next year has in store for you, and whether your educa- 
tion will have for you an immediate cash value. And because 1 know 
what is in your mind, 1 am writing this brief message to you. 

There is not one of you who is not equipped to fdl some position 
for which you were not even eligible for consideration when \'ou entered 
Kent. The position, however, may not be open. Many of you will have 
to wait for it, — some, a year, others perhaps more. F4as your education, 
therefore, been in vain? Surely not. Suppose you had not gone to 
college. What would you be doing now, — and next year, and later? 

While you wait for your chance, look within. Is your life any 
richer because of what you got here from teachers, books and fellow 
students? Are your interests multiplied, your pleasures refined, your 
sympathies quickened, your capacities for useful service developed, 
your ambitions aroused, your standards of personal and civic conduct 
higher now than when you came? If so, these other things, — position, 
salary, opportunity and promotion will be added unto you in due time. 
In the meantime you already have the best the college had to give. 

JAJVIES OZRO ENGLEMAN, 

President

JuniorSenior Prom 



Wills Gvmnasium was the scene of the annual Junior-Senior 
Prom held on Friday, April 8th. 

Ample decorations made the gym attractive and created an 
atmosphere which enabled the students to enjoy the dance. 

This affair is now among the annual events of the college and 
is considered the high spot of the college social calendar. Attrac- 
tive leather programs, which can he preserved as memories of 
college days, and excellent music blended themselves to the suc- 
cess of the prom. 

As customary, the dance was formal.

Kent State Grows 

The enrollment for the fall term of this year took a leap up 
to more than 1300 students. This number was far greater than 
ever before during a regular school term quarter. 

Again in the winter term the enrollment set a high mark, 
reaching the 1250 mark. 

Kent State's new Liberal Arts college along with the many 
courses offered in the field of education has attracted large num- 
bers of students during the past few years. With the present rate 
of increasing enrollment, it appears as though the student body 
may soon reach the proportions of the larger colleges of the state.

Kent State Becomes a Member of the Ohio College /Association 

Kent State College has been granteel membership in the Ohio College Associa- 
tion. This action resulted after a thorough inspection of the school b\' officials of 
this group. 

Membership has come about through the recent inauguration of the Liberal 
Arts college here anci the high standard of work which is being offered here. The 
Association grew out of a group of former Liberal .Arts colleges of religious de- 
nominations. 

Admittance to this selected circle is a real asset to Kent State. Membership 
is granted onl}' to schools which pass the rigid requirements set down b\' the organ- 
ization. 

This is a real boost for Kent State and shows the rapid progress ami rise of 
the college. This pases the v.a\- for the athletic teams' ftill membership in the 
Ohio (Conference.

Summer School 



l\\o full terms of school are ofTered students during the 
summer sessions. The first term lasts for a period of six weeks, 
while the second extends over the period of five weeks. 

Many of the regular school year students take advantage of 
this period to earn extra credit hours and to assist them in com- 
pleting their courses within a shorter period. 

The remainder of the enrollment consists of students who are 
out in the field teaching or in other lines of work. They return 
for higher degrees or to help round out a personal education. 

There are two graduations during the summer. One is at the 
end of the first school term in June, the other comes at the con- 
clusion of the second term in August.

Tournaments 



Wills gymnasium has proved to be a real asset to Kent State 
during the years of its existence here. It not only supplies ample 
room for the college sports, but also, on account of its ample ac- 
commodations, has attracted many tournaments. 

The annual county class "B" tournaments in basketball are 
held in the gym every spring, followed by the district tourney in 
the same class and then the sectional meet. The winners of the 
latter play for the state championship at Columbus. 

During the past year, the state inter-collegiate wrestling 
championships were held in Wills gym.

Season Summary 

The Golden Flashes finished their third undefeated 
season on the Rockwell gridiron when they emerged 
from the 1931 campaign with a record of three victor- 
ies and four defeats. 

At the first class for candidates, fifty men answer- 
ed. Coach Wagoner conducted a series of hard work- 
outs, tests, and trials before selecting three teams with 
which to go through the season. 

In training the men for the season. Wagoner was 
assisted by Joe Begala, head wrestling and tennis coach. 
Wagoner worked with the backfield men, while Begala 
trained the linemen. 

Charles "Cocky" Kilbourne, former outstanding 
Flash athlete, coached the Frosh and sent his crew 
against the varsity in numerous scrimmages. He was 
aided by Ted Sapp, also a former all-around Kent star. 

Minus the services of Kilbourne, Stejskal, Barry 
and Sapp, the local mentors were confronted with the 
problem of filling a gap in the line and finding a new 
backfield. This was the situation when the untested and 
untried Blue and Gold eleven took the field against the 
Yeomen at Oberlin. 

Two men, both making their debut as regulars on 
their respective teams were the luminaries in the tilt. 

Barry, the Congregationalists backfield ace, worked 
behind a line composed of veterans, including four

lettermen. Walt Ta\lor. on the other hand had to work 
behind a green front wall, depending on breaks and the 
hope that the line would hold long enough for him to 
clear his pass or get avvav a punt. 

During the last period of the encounter, played 
under a broiling sun, the Flashes unleashed a passing 
attack that resulted in a touchdown and the result was 
12-6 \ictory for Oberlin. 

MIGRATION DAY 

The second week of the reign of King Pigskin, 
brought the annual Migration day game at Buchtel 
field with Akron. Kent entered the game as the under- 
dog but it was only the insatiable Zipper jinx that gave 
the Blairmen a 12-6 decision. 

The first half of the game took place in mid-field 
and ended with a scoreless tie. However, in the third 
canto, 'old man jinx' made his appearance and a pair 
of Akron touchdowns. 

Mericola lost a punt in the sun while standing on 
his own 10 yard strip. The ball bounced and struck 
his helmet and was recovered by a Zipper man who 
carried it across for the first tallv. 

The play was a very unusual one and the sudden 
jump of Akron into the lead caused the local aggrega- 
tion to crumble momentarily and permitted the Akron- 
ites to tall\' another. 

Hov.e\er, the W'agonerites recovered their old fight

and unleashed a passing attack for a touchdown. An- 
other parade toward the Akron goal posts was started 
soon after the kickoff but ended when Taylor's pass 
was intercepted on the hosts' 25 yard marker. 

MT. UNION GAME 

Mount L'nion entertained Coach Wagoner's pro- 
teges at Alliance in the third game. Pre-vvinter snow 
and rain turned the 44artshorne stadium into a veritable 
quagmire. The continual storm was of little help to the 
lighting facilities and the heavy Purple were at home in 
the sea of mud. 

Coach Thorpe's combine scored two touchdowns in 
the first quarter and one in each of the following two, 
being held scoreless in the final session. Only one of 
the touchdowns came as a result of straight football, 
the other three followed blocked punts. 

Kent threatened at the start of the third quarter 
with a march of three successive first downs brought 
the oval to the opponent's 28 yard line. The final 
score was 25-0. 

A week's layoff seemed to be of little benefit to the 
Golden Flashes. Baldwin-Wallace buried the local 
eleven under a 31-0 score after an evenly played first 
quarter. ' i^

The break came when Ta\lor, as safet\' man 
dropped a Yellow Jacket punt on the 18. from where it 
carried o\er as the first of three markers in the second 
quarter, and one in each of the remaining two. 

Deke .'Abbott broke awa_\' on ^0 and 6t \ard runs 
in the last session. However the Bereans quickly ended 
these spurts toward their goal line bv intercepting 
Ta\lor's passes. 

HOMECOMING 

.\ bruised and battered Kent State gridiron team 
finally opened the home stand of three appearances. 
The homecoming game with Capital was the first at- 
traction on the Rockwell gridiron. The greatest home 
coming crowd in the history of the sport greeted the 
two ri\als as the\- took the field. 

Ta\ior reeled off a 69 yard run around end for th; 
first touchdown on the third play of the game. .Abbott 
hit the line for the extra point. 

Capital elected to receive and returned the ball 
with a punt. The Blue and Gold started a parade of 
four first downs and Abbott plunged over for the touch- 
down and Taylor converted with a drop kick. 

In the second session the visitors held their ground 
and Kent failed to register. 

In thi- thin! quarter Tavlor scored two markers on 
runs from outside the 35 \'ard line. During this period 
Capital made its second first down of the tilt.

During the final canto. Mericola intercepted a

score of the game. 

DEFEAT OF OTTERBEIN 

The second home appearance brought the powerful 
Otterbein aggregation with a record of one defeat in six 
starts. However, Abbott, Taylor and Co. took the field 
with their old reputation of "record spoilers" in mine' 
and emerged with the second victory of the year, 6-0. 

Late in the second quarter, Housely blocked an 
Otterbein punt and Dunlavy covered the ball back ol 
the goal line to treat the faithful who braved the cold 
and rain to another win. 

The remainder of the fracas was a punting duel 
Vi herein the Flash combine had the edge. The 20 yard 
line was the nearest that the Westerville outfit could 
come to the Blue and Gold posts. 

Gear made the longest gain in the sea of mud when 
he broke through for 21 yards. 

A scrappy Hiram college team helped the Wagoner- 
Begala, Inc. to close the season with a victory on the 
home field. Playing the Flashes to a standstill in all 
but the second canto when the locals pushed over the 
lone score. Abbott and Taylor made runs of 25 yards 
but the going was slow in the rain-drenched gridiron. 
The final score was 7-0.

Season Summary 



Only three years in the history of basketball 
at Kent rivaled the season just completed. These 
were 1916, 1917, and 1921. 

The reason for the poor showing was due to 
lack of material. This year scholastic difficulties 
confronted the Golden Flashes, as well as serious 
injuries. 

Heidelberg won a close one in the opening 
encounter and the strong Muskingum quintet was 
downed by Wagoner's combine, before the issuing 
of grade. 

Being forced to build a new combine around 
Hall — who was forced out of play shorth' after- 
wards by an injury — Coach Wagoner rounded his 
team into a promising five, even though no other 
victories were recorded. 

Mount L'nion was the first team to meet the 
ruined Flashes on the Alliance court. The cham- 
pions encountered little difficultv in taking a 
52-9 decision. 

Coach Wagoner had a chance to see how his 
quintet worked on the defense in the Akron game 
in Wills gym. The score see-sawed back and forth 
listlessly and the Zippers finally won. 21-18. 
Another game on the local hardwood was feature.! 
by a low score with Hiram, 26-16. 

The next two tilts were on foreign territory, 
the former taking a 43-19 victory while the con- 
ference runnersup administered the severest wal- 
loping of the season the next night, 65-15. 

THE CHAMPS HERE 

Local cage followers were treated to a classy 
exhibition of basketball the following week when 
the Mount Union aggregation made their annual 
visit. The Blue and Gold combine provided

ii 2i 2a li. 



XjI. 



plent\' of fast opposition for the visitors although 
the score shows little indication, following a last 
half rush by the Purple. The final total was 52-25. 

Three more games were played away from 
home and each showed an improving Golden Flash 
five. Baldwin-Wallace won, 52-18; Western Re- 
serve. 50-23; while the last at Hiram almost re- 
sulted in a \ictor)' for the Wagonerites. 32-30. 

Baldwin-Wallace opened the home stand of 
four appearances by rall)'ing in the second session 
to win out, 33-24. Gintert. Carl and Co. opened 
up in the Otterbein encounter forcing the Prohibi- 
tionists to a 57-39 result. 

Coach Boles' big 'Berthas' from Wooster 
shelled out a 50-37 score in a nicel}' played feud. 

After leading at the half, the Flashes crumbled 
and lost their last chance to win, and Ken\on 
eked out a 30-26 decision before a large count}' 
tournament crowd. 

Gintert. a sophomore, led the team in playing 
time. Of the ten lettermen, onl\- two were not 
members of the second year class, the)' being 
Nicholson, junior, and Mall, senior.

Reviewing Wrestling 

Winning four and losing three of tlneir meets, Coach Joe Begala's Blue and 
Gold wrestlers closed a season which was consistently marred with injuries and 
illness. No card saw the complete Flash lineup intact. 

Opening with an easy victory over the Akron Zippers, 36>4 to i,^, the Golden 
Flashes next traveled to Columbus and lost to Ohio State, 23-3. 

Case School of Applied Science furnished the opposition for the third meet. 
The score of 16-14 indicates the fact that the match was not decided until the final 
bout. With the score at 11-all, Lukens surprised a large home crowd by pinning 
his opponent, and Shelly finessed a time victory to Case. 

With Hissner and Secrist on the hospital list, Ohio U. won from the Kentites, 
25-13. The feature of the meet was the fall victory over the champion Stanley, 
by Straub. 

Fenn college's matmen were defeated in the curtain raiser to the Wooster 
cage tilt, 26-8. 

A number of men left their sick beds to travel to Cleveland where the Reserve 
Red Cats had to use all they had to win 20-10. 

Fresh from a tie with West Virginia Wesleyan, which had trounced Kent's 
opponent of the previous week, Waynesburg took a 21-11 defeat from the Begala- 
men, in the Pennsylvania hills. 

Kent placed five men in the finals of the Ohio Inter-collegiate Wrestling 
championships in the Wills gymnasium. Miller, Baker, Dunlavy, Lukens and 
Shelly all lost by referee's decisions on the last night. Reserve and Ohio U. tied 
for the team championship. 

Bagala will have a number of the lettermen back for next year's squad. A 
powerful crew of freshman wrestlers have been working out daily and promises to 
make competition keen for those aspiring for the 1933 varsity. 

A heavy schedule, including Carnegie Tech, Washington and Jefferson, and 
others has been lined up for next year.

Track and Baseball 



Kent State's representatives in the spring sports encountered a disastrous 
season. The cinder-pounders dropped three successive meets to Hiram, Akron 
and Baldwin-Wallace. 

Kilbourne and Moore placed on the pole-vault event in the Big Six track 
meet. Blue and Gold men also participated in the Ohio Relays at the Buckeye 
stadium at Columbus. 

Coach Merle Wagoner's crew of horse-hide chasers suffered a similar fate on 
the diamond. Of the eight games booked the Golden Flashes came out of but one 
tilt on the long end of the score. 

Baldwin-Wallace came to the Rockwell diamond with a clear record of seven 
victories, for the spring home-coming attraction, but failed to do anything with 
the slants of the veteran, Mose Hall. 

Hall was the moundsman for the majority of the encounters while Leggett 
relieved him, when necessary. 

Gatchell, Baker, Shelly and Taylor took the leading positions of the Kent 
batting averages.

Tennis 

The Spring of 1931 saw the completion of the clay courts behind the \\'ills 
g>mnasium and the appearance of a Blue and Gold tennis team. 

The Begalamen played a schedule of five meets, taking three and dropping 
two. Teams were played from Muskingum, Mount Lmion, Ashland, and I liram. 

Gene Traxler was the outstanding performer during the year, going to the finals 
of consolation series in the state tournament at Ken\on college. George Warman 
won a majorit}' of his sets on the courts. 

The outlook for this \ear is bright w ith Traxler, Jones, ixntl Willetls returning 
to form the nucleus for a \eteran team.

Women's 'iAthletic y^ssociation—Men's Intra-Murals 

The Women's Athletic Association, a national organization, 
has gained real prominence on Kent State's campus. The large 
number of women enrolled in the physical education courses 
enables it to have a large membership. 

A varied list of sports are outlined and enable the women 
students to enjoy recreational games which will be of real value 
to them in the field of physical education. 

The Men's Intra-murals are based upon competition between 
the various fraternities and men's organizations on the campus. 
Likewise, it consists of a varied program which enable those not 
out for varsity sports to enjoy these sports and their benefits.

Mr. Joe Kelly, Editor

Kent State College 
Kent , Ohio. 

My dear Mr. Kelly : 

I enclose my judgments on the Beauty 
Contest photographs v^hich you forwarded to me, naming 
five contestants numerically according to my opinion. 

Yon understand that it is very difficult 
to make decisions from photographs and that my findings 
can be determined only through them and not based on the 
charm of the actual person. 

I base my opinions on what the camera 
shows of regularity of features, animation and charm. 

I hope these judgments will meet with 
the genera] approval of the school board. 

Sincerely yours.

Pan Hellanic and Inter-Fraternity 

Council 



Greek letter policies on the campus are regulated by two 
governing bodies, Pan-Hellenic and The Inter-Fraternity Council. 

Each sorority is represented in Pan-Hellenic by members and 
faculty advisors. Officers are chosen to preside over the meetings 
at which business concerning the sororities, as a whole, is discussed 
and voted upon. 

Pledging, rush parties, Greek-letter dances, etc., are among 
the items that come under the rule of this association. 

The inter-Fraternity council is but recently organized and 
has not adopted as definite a program as the Pan-Hellenic associ- 
ation. Deferred pledging and other topics of fraternal importance 
are to be ruled upon.

HAROLD R. JONES 
Editor 



The Kent Stater, college weekly newspaper, now completing its sixth year of 
existence, has in the past year made many improvements that are expected to place 
it even higher in state collegiate journalistic circles than last year, when it was 
adjudged the third best paper in the state. Honors were also won in national 
contests. 

In addition to internal improvements the paper has functioned efficiently as 
a laborator}' ground for students of the college journalism classes. Classes in 
headline writing, makeup and advanced reporting, in addition to that in elemen- 
tar\' reporting, have done valuable practical work on The Stater. 

During the }'ear the staff averaged about 50 members, in all departments. 
Social events were held and the staff, with the assistance of Professors Griebling 
and Engleman, played host to the fall convention of the Ohio College Newspaper 
Association. The paper was also represented at the spring convention at Witten- 
berg. 

Marold Jones, a junior, is editor, and Buryl f-. Engleman is facult\' ad\'isor 
of the publication.

Editor 



Considerable time and effort has been put fortii in preparation of tiiis \'olume 
in an effort to produce an annual which will meet with the approval of the students, 
facult\'. administration, and friends of the college. 

The theme chosen is one which represents scenes very familiar to every Kent 
Stater and should help, during the years to come, bring back vivid memories of 
Kent State. 

In arranging the book two factors — first, to follov\- the customar\' procedure 
for publications of this type and second, to keep in line with the theme of the book 
as much as po3sible — were given prime consideration. 

The registrar's records were consulted in placing students in their respective 
class groups and for the spelling of names. The winter term standing of the 
students being taken for classification in this book. 

F^.ven with these precautions, errors of classification and spelling will undoubt- 
ably lesult in some cases. The editors hope that the number of such cases will 
be at a minimum.

College Theatre 



The Kent State College Theatre, since its inception a year ago, has grown 
tremendously. The total membership this year has exceeded 130, which is a 
worthy expression of the interest that has been aroused in dramatics at the college. 

Professor E. Turner Stump, director, supervises the College Theatre and draws 
upon its membership for his play casts and technical staffs. The student manager 
presides over the theatre meetings, appoints the department heads and sees that 
the various departments function. He also prepares and files the records of indi- 
vidual as well as organization activities. 

Under the departmental system, into which The College Theatre is divided, 
seven major productions, "The Melting Pot", "Icehound" , "Snow White and the 
Seven Dwarfs", "Cock Robin", "Craig's Wife", "The Cradle Song", and "The 
Wooden Kimono" have been successfully presented before capacity audiences.

Poetry Club 



Among the latest of organizations to appear on the campus is 
the Poetr}' club. The group is sponsored by Dean Blanche E. 
Verder and interested students. 

To become a member, one must write, at least, one acceptable 
poem. These are read at meetings along with a study of other 
poetry. 

It is hoped, by this method, to arouse an interest in poetry 
and to give an opportunity for aspiring poets to exchange ideas, 
etc., with others of similar interests. 

Marjorie Russell, of New Castle, Penna., was elected as 
temporary president at the second meeting of the club.

AN APPRECIATION 

We have enjoyed keenly our work in producing this edition 
of the CHESTNUT BURR. 

The laudable ambition of Joseph Kelly and the staff, to 
make the best CHESTNUT BURR yet, was kept well in 
mind when we printed and bound the book. We wanted to 
do our part as best we could and hope we have pleased you. 

For twenty years we have made modest claim to a position as 
leaders in production of School Annuals. That we have held 
this leadership in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia is 
attested by our success this year in turning out books for 
leading schools in this section.
